WHAT IS IT about Kathie Lee Gifford?People seem to love her. The ratings of "Live! With Regis & Kathie Lee" are boffo -- rocketing from 3 million daily viewers in 1991 to 8 million now. She has written a best-selling book, donates to charities, does commercials.And yet, some people can't stand her. Mention her name in an office, and someone will likely go, "Yyyeeeeeew!" Late-night comics and tabloid headlines have long taken their shots.But now, the headlines have turned particularly ugly, screaming of an alleged dalliance involving her husband -- which the tabloid itself may have set up, with Kathie Lee an innocent victim.
